Amsterdam: not just pot
Baptist de Pape is an author and director in search of spirituality. He was set for a successful career as a lawyer, but at the end of his studies he couldn’t bring himself to sign his first job contract. It was at this precise moment that he stumbled upon an interview with Eckhart Tolle by Oprah Winfrey.
Eckhart Tolle said that every human being should think about what life wants from them, instead of what they want from life.
Baptist decided to follow this advice. This how he had his epiphany: his goal in life is now to study the power of the heart, to write a book about it, then make a film. To do this, he collects stories from writers, thinkers and scientists. The Infinite Power of the Heart was released on 7 October 2014, and the premiere of the film was shown in Amsterdam.
Baptist says that “the power of the heard is an infinite source of love, wisdom and intelligence. It is inside us all, and accessible to all.” He takes Clique to discover Amsterdam through the lessons of his work.
